Worrying Times - Development and Water Voles

 A site entrance has gone in at both ends of the field ready for earth movers etc.

I know all of you who follow this blog will be as concerned as me that there are signs the field where the Edgeley Road voles live might be developed. It's a spectacular habitat, not just for water voles but for otters, both of which are protected species, and barn owls, water shrews, weasels and kestrels, to name but a few of the wild animals who use this site.

However, I know the landowner is on board with the voles, and fully aware of the law regarding water voles and their habitat, and will make sure full mitigation measures are followed.
